Abstract

Formal expressions are developed for the general fivefold differential cross section of incoherent π-photoproduction on the deuteron, including beam and target polarization. The polarization observables of the cross section are described by various beam, target, and beam-target asymmetries for polarized photons and/or polarized deuterons. They are given as bilinear Hermitean forms in the reaction matrix elements divided by the unpolarized cross section. In addition, the corresponding observables for the semiexclusive reaction d→(γ→,π)NN are also given.
